First time (in a long time) I've visited a hotel that doesn't/didn't have a blow dryer, and clothes iron/board.
The price was right (see the end of this review) and so I try to consider that when making a review. This hotel currently doesn't charge mandatory "resort fees".
This "deluxe" South Tower Room was decent size, with 2 queen beds. The beds were comfortable, but the pillows were pretty hard. Bring your own pillows if you like/need a softer pillow! The beds are double sheeted, (nice touch), but the bedding is very light, so you may need to ask for additional blankets of you want the feel of something on top of you when sleeping.
This room had a 32" Flat Screen TV. Premium channels are/were included (nice) during our stay.
The Plaza Hotel faces the Freemont Street Experience, and therefore makes for a convenient stay at "Downtown" Vegas.
That's about it for the pros.
CONS: Bathroom was so small that I had to virtually step into the bathtub to close the door. Door opens inward to the commode and shower making for very cramped use of that area. An outward opening door would help a lot.
The vanity area is decent, and next to it is an area for luggage and hanging of clothes. A wall safe is available as well.
There are no refrigerators in these rooms unless you are willing to pay additional fees.
There are NO ice machines in the halls on ANY floor.
The rooms were clean, however the remnants of stale smoke still permeated the room, compelling me to wash even my clean clothes upon return home.
It is important to note that for the price, this stay was acceptable, even with some of the basics missing.
Rates change constantly but this Deluxe Room in the South Tower ran less than 30 dollars per night mid-week. (makes it hard to complain too much).
Most hotels in Las Vegas charge a "resort fee", which in most cases is a mandatory extra cost that is paid upon check-in. The Plaza does NOT charge "Resort Fees", (as of November, 2011).
